This is a single player Half Life 2 mod, set entirely outside of city 17. it features:

+6 levels of action, exploring a range of locations (from an underground facility to fighting alongside the combine on an alien world to floating color-coordinated cubes)

+Non-linear level progression- you start near a nexus of gateways, and may choose the order in which to progress through the levels

+A musical score (a total of 8 tracks)

+Some new abstract textures (see image 3)

+Challenging gameplay- this mod is meant for those who have already completed Half Life 2.

****For those with version 1.0, to get around the bug in the airboat-sequence, just noclip through the floor. (this is fixed in version 1.1) To noclip, open the console with ~ (or if its deactivated, go to options/keyboard/advanced to activate it) then type in "sv_cheats 1" and then in a separate line "noclip" (it should spit back at you "noclip on"). Type "noclip" again to deactivate noclipping.

EDIT:The website is down... sorry about that.
Hello anyone who cares, Kiwi Productions has a new website! Pretty soon
we are going to start releasing information regarding our next project.
There is a little bit of information regarding it on the new site, but
more will be posted here on moddb at some point. For those who want a
sequel to Gateways, understand that this is not a sequel, although it
has a similar style and design. That said, we believe it is much
improved, even in its currently early state. We'll make a bigger,
"official," not private, announcement later. Here is the website:

This is everything you need to play Gateways (assuming you have half life 2). Version 1.1 fixes a major flaw in the last level of version 1.0. (v1.0 had...

I came in here thinking I would probably regret playing this... but I thought it was so much fun I had to play it twice. Here is my review: 9.5/10.
I love this mod. The level design and how you wanted to fascinate the player worked together very well and you wanted to focus on fun gameplay instead of being serious with the fact you had to escape. I noticed how you wanted to have a wierd and cool enviroment for the player to play in but you also wanted to make it something completely different from any mods out there, Gateways is a perfect example of that. Although this mod might not suit everyone due to its wierd geometry and areas you had to beat but it was worth while and really fun for those who mostly come across it. I'm disapointed in the lighting though. Some lights were way to bright and some were, well, just not there... I felt that you were slightly rushed, got sick of mapping, and just wanted to release it already. although I do greatly recomend that you work on a mod just like this one except with gameplay up to 2 hours and it will be fantastic for many people.
I hope my constructive critism helps you, goose053.

Thanks for playing goose053! I think we did a much more... refined job on our second mod, (which is here: ). It is about 2 hours long :P

I'm really happy to see people still enjoying the mod :)!
